In my opinion... I have my diapers and wipes, birp towel and genie right next to the bed... Baby safe in his bassinet and boobs tucked and ready for whatever feeding time baby throws at me tonight... no botttles,no formula scooping n measuring..no shaking to mix,no warming. Just baby,me and my breasts ...my feet will NOT leave my bed to tonight, this is so much easier to me...

Agreed.
The one thing I don't get is when people say formula is easier.
It seems to me it would be more work.
Washing bottles, preparing them, eyc!

You could have pumped and froze It for those days.

Just sayin.

I did both...I thought breastfeeding was so much easier but DS refused it after a while. =( Docs and I think maybe something was off with my meds and that made it taste different to him or something. All we know is after 6 weeks he would NOT take it.

I'm jealous of moms that can/ could breast feed full time. I had to bump and mix with formula. It sucked I'm so glad I'm past that part in my life lol

I'm honestly jealous of breastfeeding moms :/ with my first I was able to breastfeed for 4 months. It was so nice at night just to roll over and snuggle her and breastfeed. But I stopped producing. No rhyme or reason. It just stopped. My last 2, I nwver for anything. I saw several lactation specialists. I tried pumping. I tried literally everything I could think of. Nadda. I'm due in 12 weeks, and I'm going to try again but my hopes are kind of shot now. Im going to try to tea and anything else I can in hopes something will work.

So yea, in my opinion, your right. Breastfeeding is a lot more convenient.
